A beautiful, green, welcoming front entrance is coming to Westmead Hospital in 2020 when the new acute services building opens.
On Hawkesbury Road, alongside the university clinics entrance, major changes are coming to traffic and access to help us build this great new entrance.
Currently, the eastern section of the new plaza has been isolated by site fencing (plaza east). This is the location of the old fleet services car park.
In early April, hoarding will begin to be erected around the entrances to University Clinics as well as car parks P2 and P3. This will be to commence works on the western section of the new plaza (plaza west).
The commencement of these works will mean key changes to access for patients, staff and medical officers in this location.
The current access to car park P2 and cancer care services via Hospital Road will no longer be available. Access will now be via a new shared entry point from car park P3.
New entry infrastructure will be installed to assist with traffic flow into car park P3 outside the university clinics entrance. This will include a second entry lane and boom gate.
A temporary ramp will also be installed on the bottom level of car park P3 to enable medical officers to access car park P2 and patients to access designated cancer care services parking spaces.
More information will be provided about changes to access for patients, staff and medical officers as we move closer towards the start of works. To stay up to date with the latest information, make sure to read our weekly project update, look out for staff broadcasts and new wayfinding signage around the area.
